After formal FDA approval in 2008, celebrating the Neuronetics TMS System completion of its One Millionth TMS treatment, thousands of success stories, and mounting research evidence detailing the multitude of TMS therapy benefits—insurance companies are slowly, but surely, coming on board, too. The latest victory is Aetna’s change in TMS insurance coverage policy. Read more about the lawsuit that was the final push toward Aetna changing its TMS insurance coverage policy.

TMS is now a covered service for Aetna members 18 years-old and older who suffer with drug-resistant Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).
